for a moment now. last night vice president biden said the obama administration was not told of requests for more security in the run-up to the terror attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. republicans pounced on that claim pointing to testimony the day before from the state department officials that said there had been earlier requests for more security staffing. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge is live in washington with more on all this. the catherine. >> reporter: good morning. on libya the vice president blamed the intelligence community for bad assessments that informed the administration public and controversyal statements about the attack and suggested the white house was unaware for more requests on the ground in libya. >> we weren't told they wanted more security. we did not know they wanted more security again. by the way, at the time we were told exactly, we said exactly what the intelligence community towed us. that they knew. that was the assessment. and as the intelligence community changed their view, we made it clear they changed their view. that's
to iraq. we had the same position before the withdrawal was we agreed with the obama administration. let's have a status of forces agreement to make shiewrp we secure our gains. the vice president was put in charge of those negotiation by president obama and they failed to get agreement. we don't have an agreement because they fail to get one. that's what we are talking about. and when it comes to our veterans, we owe them a great debt of gratitude for what they've done for us, including your son, beau, but we also want to make sure we don't lose the things we fought so hard to get. with respect to afghanistan the 2014 deadline, we agree with the 2014 transition, but what we also want to do is make sure we're not projecting weakness abroad. and that's what's happening here. this benghazi issue would be a tragedy in and of itself, but, unfortunately, it's indicative of a broader problem. and that is what we are watching on our tv screens is the unravel other of the obama foreign policy which is making the more chaotic and us less safe. >> i just want to talk to you about right in the midd
this again tonight, talked about the weakness, talked about apology from the obama administration. was that really appropriate, right in the middle of the crisis? >> on that same day, the obama administration had the exact same position. let's recall that they disavowed their own statement that they put up earlier in the day in cairo. we had the same position. it's never too early to speak out for our values. we should have spoken out right away when the green revolution was up and starting when the mullahs in iran were attacking their people. we should not have called bashar assad a reformer when he was turning his russian-provided guns on his own people. we should always stand up for peace, for democracy, for individual rights. and we should not be imposing these devastating defense cuts because what that does, when we equivocate on our values, when we show -- >> am i going to get anything to say here? >> it projects weakness, when we look weak, our adversaries are able to attack us -- >> that's a bunch of mularkey. >> why is that so? >> not a single thing he said is accurate. >
the withdrawal which was we agreed with the obama administration. let's make sure we secure our gains. the vice president was put in charge of those negotiations by president obama, and he failed to get the agreement. we don't have a set of forces agreement because today failed to get one. that's what we were talking about. when it comes to our veterans, we owe them a great debt of gratitude, including your son, beau. but we also want to make sure that we don't lose the things we have fought so hard to get. and with respect to afghanistan, the 2014 deadline, we agree with the transition, but what we also want to do is make sure we're not projecting weakness abroad, and that's what's happening here. this benghazi issue would be a tragedy in and of itself, but unfortunately, it's indicative of a broader problem, and that is what we are watching on our tv screens is the unraveling of the obama foreign policy which is making the world more chaotic and us less safe. >> moderator: i just want to talk to you about right in the middle of the crisis, governor romney -- and you're talking about this agai
made that number vivid. he also, you know, again, not going to bash president obama again, but he did give a rationale for their administration and for the re-election, that they have a very different view of the role of government in creating the middle class, that we did it once before in the '30s, '40s, '50s, and '60s and we can do it again and the middle class just needs a fair shot. i felt that was the most heartfelt and emotional portions of his presentation, and i think that they're very effective. people are talking about his laughter, about you when you show those couple moments and you see his passion talking to people directly, i think it's so effective and devastating. paul ryan looks like an accountant whose numbers don't add up. >> michael, final opportunity for you, do you think mr. biden has stole the limited momentum that romney appeared to have last week? >> well, he at least changed the conversation. we're no longer talking about how barack obama is a terrible debater and may have given away the election a week ago which is good for barack obama. i don't know if thi
